Revlon Color Illusion Lilac Beam

Another one of my favorite old discontinued Revlon colors... Lilac Beam, from the Color Illusion collection.


Revlon Color Illusion in Lilac Beam. This looks like it's bubbled, but it's not. Those are little chunks of metallic glitter that didn't poke through the base polish. This is a light purple base with a heavy green/turquoise/blue duochrome shimmer and a bunch of little silver metallic glitter flecks. The shimmer has a lot of visual texture compared to normal shimmer; it looks rough but it doesn't feel rough on the nail. Formula isn't the nicest to apply and the drying time is long, but I still think the color is fabulous and I'm willing to deal with the flaws for it.

  2. That IS fabulous. It would probably look really cute over a blurple or wine color too.
    Makes me miss older polishes a LOT - I feel like back in the 90's, companies like Revlon & Sally Hansen were a lot more adventurous with their colors.

  6. Beautiful! I'm serious, Revlon's vintage colors are the best. I wish they would bring them all back...just one more time.

  9. This is stunning! Thanks for letting us know it's one with a smooth finish! I just saw a ton of new Revlon on display at Walgreens (not mine - one close to the hospital I have been doing treatments at out of town for months now)....and I about fell over - Revlon has changed the shape of their bottle after all these years. The flair is gone at the bottom - the sides are straight up round cylandar! I don't know if I will ever forget the classic bottle. It's lived such a long life. I know it was around in the middle 60's.
